Windows 10 build 10041 includes various bugs and issues, here’s a list

Windows 10

Microsoft has today published a new Windows 10 build which comes riddled with new bugs for us all to enjoy (finally!). Build 10041 is the first build sent to insides in the 10k build range, and comes with a few new features and bugs which we can expect to bump into.

Microsoft has published a list of known issues on its Windows Blog which you can see below:

  • Some people might hit an issue where the username and password boxes do not appear or don’t accept input when logging in, which will prevent them from logging in. Possible workarounds include clicking the “Switch User” button, using Ctrl+Alt+Del, or pressing the power button on your PC to sleep/resume and try again.
  • It is possible to manually lock your PC during the initial out-of-box experience. If you do this, you will have to hard reboot your PC and restart the OOBE experience. (So don’t lock your PC during OOBE :-)
  • In this build, the Mail, Calendar, and People apps may be broken due to a licensing issue with the Store Beta.
  • There are several accessibility issues in this build, which may make it difficult to use with Narrator or 3rd party screen readers. Additionally there is an issue where using a Lens after enabling Magnifier may cause the screen to be unusable.
  • You might notice a chess knight icon on your Lock screen to the right of the screen. This was added by the Lock screen team so they could tell via screenshots if someone was using the new Lock screen or the old one, and will eventually be removed in a future build.
  • Font sizes on the Lock screen on devices with high DPI can be really large.
  • We currently have the Tablet Mode notification turned off by default to address some of the issues we’ve been seeing. The notifications can be turned back on via Settings.
  • The touch keyboard doesn’t show up on login screen which prevents you from unlocking your PC when Narrator is on.
  • Some people might see frequent prompts to restart to install updates, even though no updates need a restart. This prompt can be ignored safely.

So, if you’re planning to install this new build into you machine, you may want to keep that in mind.
